This Praying Mantis had been hanging onto the siof my wife’s watering can. I took him out to the garden and he quietly slid down into the mulch to do a little hunting. The light wasn’t the best so I did a litt,e work in Photoshop Elements 6 to make him more presentable. He turned his head to watch me a couple times. For such a top insect predator they’re not afraid to crawl up your arm and have a look. I’ve nevef seen hostility from one to people – just curiosity.
